Moogfest + SLIPPAGE

What are the resonances from redlining to political gerrymandering? How are neighborhoods designated to separate people? When did the Federal Government actually engage in unfair lending practices in order to keep African Americans out of quality neighborhoods and away from the best resources available to other Americans?

SLIPPAGE presents an exploration of redlining, gerrymandering, and asocial cartographies that produce and reinforce inequality. Deploying custom-designed live-feed sonification interfaces, wearable technologies, and AfroFuturist performance practices, this hour-long afrotechnopunk extravaganza brings DUKE faculty, graduate students, community activists, and SLIPPAGE artists together for a special MOOGFEST presentation.

This performance is a part of the Moogfest 2018, but is free and open to the public at the von der Hayden Theater at the Duke Arts Center. Buses will leave from West Parrish St, next to 21c Museum Hotel at 2:30pm and 2:45pm, returning at 4:00pm and 4:15pm.

Featuring artists JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell, Martin Brooke, Denver Carlstrom, James Clotfelter, Kristin Clotfelter, Thomas F. DeFrantz, Summer Dunsmore, Quran Karriem, Matthew Kenney, Tessa Nunn, Rebecca Uliasz, Leah Wilks, and Brittany Williams.
